Ryan wants Pompey to lay it all on the line
From Orin Gordon in London
Now it gets serious. For Aliann Pompey and Team Guyana, for whom all three track athletes compete at the London Olympic stadium today.
Pompey, arguably Guyana’s one world-class athlete, is into the semi finals of the women’s 400 metres at the 2012 Olympics.
Today is the race of her life, the semi finals. The semis were her high water mark in Beijing four years ago, where she placed 11th overall. The final eight would represent real, tangible progress, irrespective of how she finishes.
Her American coach Joe Ryan, is blunt.
